if the ext looks good then I will be buying one, I dont see anything good about the new escalade other than the interior, and the lexus still beats that interior

trade my 02 ext in and get $25k tops from the dealer and then spend $60k on a new one with no discount off msrp? I dont think so. Local dealers are knocking like $12k off 05 escalades msrp, too bad they wont be doing that for 07s.

Why dont you be the big baller you were portraying yourself to be in the other posts you made about the new escalade.:bigroll:

GM took all the angles out of the body lines and made it more rounded lookin. I would also like to see the EXT it might look good.

Not if they gave it to me for free, it is Fugly...

The only way I would consider it is if I saw a new grill that would change the modernized locomotive looking front end (and I could get a smart buy for $499 a month again)...

Well the style grew on me enough to trade up... but ut seems like there is a lot more hate than love for the 2007... I can't wait to hear what critics have to say about it...

Hello Fellow Escaladers

I dont think the new Escalade are that bad, actually the more i look at
it the more i like it. I remember when the 2nd gen. Escalade first came
out, i didnt like it, but now i love(d) it.

Okay on to the point:

I understand why so many people on here hate the new redesign and i will be the first to admit it.

We all come to this forum because we are in love with our trucks, and
now the fun is over. Over the years we had put alot of time, money and
energy into our Escalades and now all that we done was in vain. We
spent countless hours on this forum because we are addicted to our
trucks. No matter what we have done to our trucks and how much we claim
we hate the new redesign, our OLD (2002-2006) Escalades will be
outdated. To be honest, I looked at the side by side comparison that
was posted on this site of the 2nd and 3rd generation escalades and to
be honest the redesign make ours look OLD, outdated, Bulky to say the
least.

At first i tried to hate the new redesign ( lights, bumper, grill, i
even got petty and tried to hate the wheel gaps) but i just cant. I
made every excuse in the book why i wouldnt get one. I tried to find
excuses to have when i pull up in the old one to justify why i didnt
buy the new one. Just like some of you are doing Our trucks are worth
$30,000 max and trading in and buying a new one for $60k will be a
loss.


Remember bragging showing off our truck. Remember how you couldnt wait
to go out on the town and people looking in your truck to see who you
are feeling like you are the one, well all that is over becuase you
cant be the one in the OLD "one"

Now the one thing i do hate is that the Tahoe and Yukon favors the
escalade, but that Cadillac symbol in the grill makes it something more
special.

I was about to buy me a new set of 26 inch rims, but why? It wouldnt
look right when the new ones come out. Remember after the 2nd
generation came out and people we trying to fix up their one year old
1999 first gen model and how corny it looked.

I not trying to knock anyone but i understand and at first i felt the
same way you did, bitter, hateful, envious, but when i actually sit
down and look at the big picture, i will have to say, iam gonna buy.<br>

Thanks for letter me shed my pain:histeric:

I'll be hitting the dealer and the Autoshow to check it out. From the pix posted, I like the interior. A great improvement over the current dash. Much more upscale... I like the power fold rear seat and the power close liftgate. Things the Navagator has had for a while now...
I'll have to see what the dealer gives me for a trade on our '04 Escalade... I'm definitely considering it... It would have to be RED again! ;)

The new 2007 Lade sucks! It is ugly and cadillac did a real bad job redesigning the exterior, I hate it, I'll be keeping my '05 for a long time. The interior is nice, but still not up to my standards yet, Caddy has a long time to go before they get this SUV CORRECT!

Where were your standards when you bought the 05?

The interior on your Escalade borders on disgusting and cheap.

I think the 07 is a huge improvement inside and out, already makes the previous model look dated imho.

Granted its not as hot looking as a Range Rover, but its not priced like one either.

Like i said people are hating and disliking because their trucks that they fell in love with is an old model. Thats how people get when they feeling are hurt, they. SO they trying to justifying not buying it because its not in their budget right now. The new escalade beautiful!!!!!!!!!!!

Thats a pretty big stereo-type

I kind of like the new Escalade (its a decent truck) and I can afford it...

But I don't love it and only due to the exterior styling will I not purchase it...

I needed an extreme exterior make over on the Escalade to keep me with Cadillac...this redesign is just not my forte.

I live in LA though and we have so many nice rides around here its crazy...

Hey mccombie, how do you like the Phaeton? Thats something I am considering....you dont see them around. I am just a little skeptical of the pricetag for a VW.

If your buying new, but they are already on the used market for under 40k with 20k miles or less. They are an excellent used car buy. Probably the best luxury car buy in at least 10 years because of the massive depreciation.

I just went on cars.com and did a search. I searched within 500 miles of my zip, and didnt find 1 under 40K. When I did a search for all over, I found 2 for 39k......hmm
